Actually, for what it's worth, we should NOT use internal:// or *any* 
foo:// patterns. Doing so, even internally, is a creation of what 
appears to be a new protocol, even though it's actually not. We should 
instead create a new URN, such as internal:node/4. Apple, in the past 
two years or so, I think, got flamed for using webcal:// for it's iCal 
application, where webcal was merely a file format, and not a protocol.
